Maine Quilts: Community and Comfort
Wednesday, March 15, 2023
Maine Quilts: Community and Comfort  (Monthly Meetings)
6:30 pm
Online
Presented by award-winning author, Laurie LaBar, Chief Curator of History and Decorative Arts at the Maine State Museum.
For over 200 years, Maine women kept farms, businesses, and families together when men were at sea, at war, or in the woods. The beautiful quilts they made can reveal information about how these women lived, the social networks that supported them, and the ways Maine changed through the years.  Most Maine quilters were middle-class women, who are usually absent from historical records. The information we can glean from their quilts enriches the story of Maine’s past.
This event will be held via Zoom. For information on how to attend, please email gogspresident@gmail.com
